Aims/Description: Students taking this core module will be introduced to key concepts, issues, and debates about the production, use and distribution of digital media and information in society, including how these developments relate to social inequalities. They will work together to develop their own ideas for how to tackle some of the pressing challenges facing the development of inclusive digital societies. As part of learning about these topics, students┐ will also be taught how to use web technologies to produce and publish their own digital content, and will apply basic website design and implementation skills to present their coursework.
